Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Colle di Compito - COCCINELLE FARMHOUSE WITH POOL

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool, air conditioning, wifi, barbeque

Stay in the heart of the Tuscan countryside at COCCINELLE FARMHOUSE, a short drive from Lucca -just 7 kms or 10 mins by car- to enjoy the lush greenery of the Tuscan countryside being very close to Lucca city centre (and other major Tuscan sites) at the same time!

The gate in the antique stone low wall that encloses the little estate leads you to this two-bedroom farmhouse, immersed in a hillside with stunning views of the area around Lucca. The recently restored interiors strike a balance between picturesque traditional style and sleeker contemporary lines.

A 10 metres pool is the centerpiece of the villa’s outdoor spaces, tucked into olive groves. Spend an afternoon in a chaise longue by the pool, and enjoy an al fresco dinner at the table there or outside the kitchen. For ambience, there’s a fireplace in the living room; for convenience, there’s Wi-Fi access: very fast and super reliable provided by the national phone company.

Coccinelle's interiors pair fresh white walls and furnishings with original stone walls, beamed ceilings and pops of color via cushions and flowers.

ON THE GROUND FLOOR, the living room’s focal point is the large fireplace and the huge french window overlooking the olive groves, once entrance for horses, while the dining room’s big windows open to the garden and pool. The fully equipped kitchen has modern appliances and contemporary lines in its sleek, pale-wood cabinets. A big bathroom with shower and a big laundry room equipped with iron, board and washing machine is also on the ground floor.

ON THE FIRST FLOOR, you’ll find two bedrooms (one with aking size bed and one with two twin beds) plus anbother bathroom with tub and shower.

The villa is located in a walking distance from a tipical famous grocery store selling local harvested fruit and vegetables, local cheeses and salami as well as any kind of items like a small supermarket.

The villa is less than 1 km from other shops, bank, restaurants, pizzerias, ice crema shop, bar and post office in the village of SAN LEONARDO IN TREPONZIO and PIEVE DI COMPITO and just 7 kms from the city centre of Lucca. Take a day trip to the shores of Viareggio beach, about 25 mins away, or to Florence in 35 mins driving or to PISA in just 20 mins. The closest train station is in 7 kms from the villa, less than a 10 min drive.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this farmhouse in 2015

What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

What's not to like? The Villa is beautiful, spacious and immaculate. The hosts are generous with their time and advice. Relax by the pool and enjoy the tremendous view or explore Tuscany from this home base. Many days trips available from this central location (Pisa, Florence, Carrara, Siena, Cinque Terre, etc). Loved it. Coming back in 2017

the Tuscan sun at the coccinelle farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The villa is historic and beautiful. The location is fantastic, the staff and owner gracious and helpful, cannot do enough for your comfort and enjoyment. A perfect location. Near Florence and Cinque Terre as well as the Ligurian Sea and beaches. An easy drive to the historic mountain towns or to wonderful Chianti country. It is even easy to make a run for Rome for a few days. Maybe the best was sitting by or in the pool reading a good book and enjoying a glass of delicious red and the Tuscan sun in complete solitude on the big hill overlooking Lucca

Charming Tuscan villa with pool in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

It was a 5 stars place and we enjoyed our stay very much. We spent a week in a villa and enjoyed every minute. I recommend it to people who love art and history and who wish to experience real Tuscany. Every detail of the house is special. The garden is amazing- old trees make a great shade and camellias are wonderful. It made our morning coffee unforgettable. We thank our hosts for lovely holiday. We are in love with Mrs Sonia. Thank you

charming Lucca farmhouse with beautiful pool

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. It is ideally situated for enjoying the delights of Lucca and Pisa itself and also for visiting the hill towns of both central Tuscany and seaside beaches. The villa is set in extensive grounds with views across woods and olive groves. It is beautifully and elegantly furnished and very well equipped for self catering. The terrace in front of the property is perfect for relaxing and having wonderful dinners under the century old trees that we will never forget. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a property convenient for the sights and relaxing in a charming setting. The pool was beautiful, there were lot of flowers and the new sunbeds.

The owners provided excellent customer service including booking us a restaurant table on our first evening (we arrived at 5.30 pm)

There were two other restaurants closeby which we particularly liked: Giardinetto and Tre Tigli. Lucca itself is a wonderful city to wander in - especially in the early morning and evening when there are few tourists.

charming homey farmhouse in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here at the beginning of December. The bedrooms are cosy and nice and each one has windows with lovely views of the countryside. The walls outside our room was covered in rosemary and jasmine which must smell amazing in the summer.

The farmhouse also has a large, well-equipped kitchen-diner and a comfortable sitting / dining room with a charming fireplace that adds a charming homey feeling. It really is just 10 minutes away from Lucca town, yet surrounded by beautiful gardens. Nearby shops stock everything you'll need, and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Several bus services pass within a couple of minutes' walk, and we found the buses to be regular and reliable.

The owner has left notes around the house to help you deal with plumbing, electricity etc. We followed the instructions and had no problems. I am glad we met Mrs Sonia and we will definitely be renting again from her for your trip next winter. James and Sarah

an absolute gem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been expats for 14 years. We stay all over the world. Coccinelle farmhouse, run by Sonia is an absolute gem, thankfully hidden high in the hills surrounding Lucca. One of the great family debates each day was, " do we want to leave to travel around the district, or stay and just absorb the ever changing stunning views?". We did both as there is so much to see around the area. We also did the home cooking classes organized by Sonia’s friend Mrs Cristina. The house is great, but it is just the location and those views that draw you in. If you need a break from a hectic life, go to Coccinelle.
